Last week, Diddy thanked supporters for going out and buying his latest album.
"Y'all already know I deal with a lot of hate and I talk about that but it's also important to talk about when I'm dealing with a lot of love," Diddy said in a vlog. "And the love you've shown me and the girls on this project, y'all made this project a success and I want to say thank-you. We ain't have no number one records -- we had the Twitter support, we had one of the first albums where Twitter overrode radio, TV, anything else and y'all basically said that y'all heard the album and it's hot. Definition of the Internet. Word of mouth, being viral, having control of what's going on. I want to thank y'all for just helping me get to this day, helping [Dirty Money's Kaleena and Dawn] get to this day. Y'all been riding with us, seeing us grow and evolve, but like right now, Twitter, you guys, everybody that's in the family, that's been down from day one, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you -- The success of this album is all due to you guys. We're gonna keep spreading the word, we're about to go on tour, we're about to really get this mood cracking." (Diddy Blog #7)
Diddy and Dirty Money also released a statement discussing their first-week sales success.
"On Monday, the 'experts' projected that our 'Last Train To Paris' album would move approximately 65k units in its first week. Well, they were wrong. With the help of our fans and the tremendous power of Twitter our debut album skyrocketed to #7 on The Billboard 200 chart scanning more than 100k units. Also this week, our new single, 'Coming Home' broke through to the top ten on iTunes. This is an amazing start for a brand new group and for a debut album. We are so thankful!"- Diddy, Dawn, and Kalenna (Diddy-Dirty Money)" (Statement)
